Dances of Loïe Fuller / Loïe Fuller
American dancer, choreographer, company director, and lighting designer
At a time when Art Nouveau was all the rage, Fuller burst upon the scene as its living embodiment. A new kind of dancer whose simple movements were highly expressive, she created a fantasy world of dazzling shapes and light play. Every mixed-media artist today owes a debt to her pioneering use of electrical lighting and her synthesis of music, color, light and fabric.
Anna Kisselgoff. The New York Times, September 24, 1988
